Fast Five Friday + 2
L.G. Smith and Hektor Karl kindly gave me a cool award recently. L.G. and Hektor are both amazing bloggers. Do yourself a favor and become followers immediately. The 7 x 7 Link Award involves looking back at old posts to find pieces of writing that made a mark. I dig that.
Most Beautiful: I've written a number of posts about the bittersweet nature of parenting, but The Raft may be my favorite.
Most Helpful: I'm not sure the blog is much help, but if there's one thing I know, it's movies. My Top Ten Movies of the Decade may give you some ideas for your next movie night.
Most Popular: I just reposted Leonard Smalls vs. Anton Chigurh in July, but with twice as many pageviews as the next closest post, it fits the bill.
Most Controversial: I don't think I've riled up much controversy, but my post on Gender Bias in Reading comes to mind.
Most Surprisingly Successful: During the A-Z Challenge, I whipped out a post for B about Ferris Bueller. I didn't think it would get much of a response, but as of today, it's the post with the most comments.
Most Underrated: I've written a lot about teaching, and Leave it to the Bard nicely captures the essence of why I love my job.
Most Prideworthy: I'm a proud Papa, and I write about my girls quite a bit. My S and Q posts from the A-Z Challenge are oozing with pride.
Now I get to pass the award on to 7 more outstanding bloggers. As always, give 'em a read and follow their exploits. I look forward to seeing their selections.
